ONE OF THE MOST BIZARRE 'GIALLI' OF ALL TIME - NOW UNCUT & UNCENSORED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN AMERICA!

In a genre defined by shocking violence and psychosexual kink, it remains perhaps the most over-the-top 'giallo' in EuroCult history: Former MGM starlet and doomed James Dean paramour Pier Angeli - two decades past her Golden Globe award for 'Most Promising Newcomer' and just one year before her tragic death - stars in this ultra-lurid epic packed with decapitations, pet vultures, creepy incest, groovy fashions, cyanide baths, swirly psychedelics, inexplicable plot twists, Nazi death camp flashbacks and more. Eleonora Rossi Drago (CAMILLE 2000), Fernando Sancho (RETURN OF THE BLIND DEAD) and Luciano Catenacci (KILL BABY, KILL!) co-star in the 1970 sickie that would make Freud himself scream in horror, now fully restored from the original Italian vault elements.

Severin film company always does a great job remastering older flims.
And this horror flick certainly looks great and even sounds good.
The film itself loosely falls into the giallo genre as it features gruesome murders.
But it is also a horror shocker which features a dysfunctional family living in a villa, a psycho killer who drops by , not that there aren't other killers too. The plot is basically straightforward as the family kills off intruders while trying to retain their deranged lifestyles. There are flashbacks to a NAZI concentration camp even which explains the use of cyanide on a victim. This film was released in 1970 and it has all the wild clothes styles of the year and other aspects that make it a creature of it's time. It would have been seen as very bloody for it's day and it is still a disturbing movie evne if the effects are from 1970. The doomed talented actress Pier Angeli is in this movie and it's one of her last. She had a good future ahead of her as she had scored a role in the 'Godfather"; but she died of a sleeping pill overdose. which was probably a accident. This movie is even more macabre with this knowledge that she had so little time left. This movie features a demented family that is a horror movie staple and it does that job well. It's a decent eurohorror blow budget shocker but Severin needs to grab some traditional Giallos like 'the killer reserved nine seats" as they put out movies that intersect with the giallo genre but have yet to grab a full on giallo. A movie in which a killer takes out people and the audience doesn't know who it is. That being said if you want to see a decent horror/shocker flick from 1970's Europe then this flick should be your cup of cyanide.

Highly recommended film, full of plot twists and intrigue. Definitely not for the kiddies. You got animal killings, decapitations, flashbacks of cyanide poisonings, etc.. Whatever disturbing thing you can imagine somehow ends up in this film. The transfer is widescreen and not bad for the material. Good value for the buck.

This was one crazy, weird and strange 70's trip! In Sergio Bergonzelli's "Nelle pieghe della carne" ("In the Folds of the Flesh" from 1970), there are some very bizarre things taking place in the sumptuous seaside-villa where 'Lucille' (Eleonora Rossi Drago), 'Falesse' (Pier Angeli), and 'Colin' (Emilio Gutiérrez Caba) all live. It all begins to unfold when an ex-con (Fernando Sancho) suddenly reappears after 13 years, to the scene where he believes a crime has taken place, and is now looking to blackmail the happy family! Now, this isn't the best nor the worst 'giallo' ever made (and let's face it folks, most 'gialli' suck anyway), but as an early entry in the genre, it's worth checking out. While there's no explicit sex or nudity from the female leads, there is an interesting flashback-scene featuring assorted nude women. Sergio Bergonzelli only turned-up the heat when he dedicated himself to 'sexploitation' films like: "Cristiana monaca indemoniata" ("Our Lady of Lust" from 1972), which badly needs a DVD release (I have a scratchy VHS copy), and later films. If you're into ridiculous delirium, get this one! The DVD picture quality from Severin is excellent; the film has been fully-restored. My only grief, it's not in its original Italian. NTSC, English (dubbed), widescreen, NR 91 mins.

Love and Peace,
Carlos Romero

Just reading the description you would think this is a terribly gross movie. It would be disgusting except for the fact that the special effects are so laughable. It would be morally repulsive except for the fact that the dubbing is so bad. Still, I wonder why Lady Whitehead didn't include this in her video nasties list. I guess she never heard of it.

Unfortunately this disc contains only the English dub. Presumably there are Italian and Spanish soundtracks out there, that might make for a somewhat more serious viewing experience. As it is, it is a good DVD to pop in when some reasonably open minded friends come over. I guarantee there will be many occasions when everybody will rise out of their chairs, look at each other, and say "What???"
